  • I've worked in the funeral industry for almost 10 years and I've never heard anybody say anything other than hearse. The only one's trying to phase out that word are the people who build them. And also contrary to popular belief, not every funeral director is out to get your money, So your little comment about us taking advantage of vulnerable people isn't really appreciated. You're only furthering a negative stereotype.

  • Noted western artist Charles Russell was taken in a horse drawn hearse at his funeral in the 1920’s as he hated automobiles. They had to search for one as funeral homes all went motorized by then.

  • Two comments here: 1) I’d own an old hearse. An old Caddie? Hell yeah! 2) I owned a black 89 Chevy Caprice wagon a while back. The boxy Caprice. And this black wagon was kind of unusual for a domestic wagon, as it was ordered without the typical ugly faux wood paneling. I live in a small town, and it was the only Caprice in town, and the only black domestic station wagon, so it was noticed and kinda became somewhat famous in town. Apparently, the locals started calling it “the hearse.” I still get asked today where The Hearse is, and I sold the car over 2 years ago. Lol

  • Yes Funeral Home companies used to run ambulances back in the day. It was a quick easy way to get cash back then because actual dedicated EMS companies were almost non existent and all you needed was someone to drive and someone that knew some first aid and you could have yourself an ambulance. The world of EMS and ambulances was friggin crazy as shit back in the day. Hell even some sanitation companies owned ambulances. Plus if you died in the Funeral Home’s ambulance the funeral home would use that as an in with your family to get them the gig of doing your funeral. Also jokes on them I get a free fire truck ride when I die.

  • I used to be a licensed Funeral Director/Embalmer. I love funeral coaches. Really they are just a station wagon with attitude. What you said about people being taken advantage by people in the Funeral Service Industry is like any other profession. There are always unscrupulous people only looking for the all mighty dollar. These few make the rest look bad.For instance we see issues with some police officers now killing people of color.Again it’s only a few officers, but their behavior makes the whole profession look bad. Many funeral directors as well as police officers feel it is a calling or following in your family. Your Dad was in the profession and your grandfather and so on. The majority of police officers are in the profession are there because they care about people and want to help them. In Funeral Service the majority are their because they care and want to help people. So make sure that you are representing the majority. By what you said it felt like you were saying people need to wa It seem every funeral director is a crook. It is a job like any other,. One of the places I worked I made $45,000 starting out. That an ok salary. I already knew the people getting rich are the owners of the funeral home. After being on call, sometimes working much of the night you had to be in at 8:00 am. So after all the hours I worked, I could have made the same amount at McDonald’s if they let me work 60-70 hours per week. I needed the money to survive, but I wasn’t a funeral director for the money, I was there because I loved helping people.I got great satisfaction in helping people.
